This recipe is an old favorite of mine. Every few months or so, when I am truly brain dead, sleep deprived, not in the mood or just plain grumpy (no, I am not in my period, I just gave birth, thank you very much), I desperately browse my old recipe collection for inspiration. At a point in […]

D-day has come. And gone. Alas, I am still a hot air balloon. On the bright side, the baby has been moving well this morning. On the not-so-bright-side, I’m still a hot air balloon. Talking about balls and balloons, I wanted to share with you this recipe for a delicious savory cheese ball. It is […]

So my due date is tomorrow. And just to make things interesting, I woke up this morning at 6 AM with regular contractions.  Regular, that is, until my kids woke up an hour later. I guess the sight of two wild haired, pajama clad toddlers stomping towards the bed was enough to scare even the contractions away. So instead […]

This is one simple Banana bread to make. It always comes out right. It does not have gazillion pounds of butter in it and it contained 50% whole wheat flour. The crust has almost a crunch to it and it keeps on the kitchen counter on in the fridge for a few days, without getting […]

I was hesitating if to post this recipe due to it’s simplicity, but then I remembered that sometimes, the simplest, most basic of recipes are the hardest to find out there in the Wild Wild West (oh, wait,  is that the World Wide Web?). No fancy duck confit here folks. Bruschetta is a great way to […]

Quicky Microwave Orange Marmalade

Do you like orange marmalade? the bitter-sweet tangy kind with real pieces of orange peel in it? So do I.  Sooo good on a fresh slice of bread, even better if you sneak in some butter. How about sugar? lots of industrial, processed, white sugar? do you like that? oh, and some Fructose (another name for […]

  If I would have known how easy this is to make, I would have made my own Ricotta cheese years ago instead of weekly harassing my grocer to get me some. Seriously, it’s no hassle whatsoever. This cheese was made from a liter of 10% coffee cream that was about to pass date in my […]

6:45 pm Saturday night. I turn to my husband and ask “didn’t we invite K and C for brunch tomorrow morning”? “yes, what of it “? answers he,  seeing no reason to fret over the fact that we  indeed invited people to share our table tomorrow morning, our humble abode is in a complete disarray, […]

  I am not vegan. But that does not mean that I cannot appreciate a good pancake when I sink my teeth into one. This recipe was inspired by my good friend T. She is vegan. She also happens to be tall, blond, slim and witty. Who knows, maybe eating more vegan would shake some […]
